Must Read For Women/Ladies: Four Common Unhealthy Habits That Affects Your Vagina

Ever heard of vulvodynia? It’s a condition that causes chronic pain, rawness or irritation that comes and goes, burning and sensitivity in the vulva — that outer part of the vagina. Gynaecologists say many things can be responsible for vulvodynia, otherwise known as v*gina depression. See them after the cut.

1. Washing with too much soap: Any type of soap, however gentle, can be irritating to the labia, says a Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Mary Jane Minkin. “The less (soap) you use, the better. Once a day or after a gym session, work up a small lather from a soap made with no dyes or fragrances, which can itch or burn,” says Minkin.

2. Getting a tattoo on or near vagina: Tempted to get a tattoo below the belt? Consider how it might affect your vagina. Having a tattoo done anywhere on your anatomy can trigger redness and inflammation, but your vaginal area has the most sensitive skin of your entire body, says Minkin.

So, you’re practically asking for a rash and itchy irritation. Even the cheap dye from a temporary tattoo can have the same effect, she says. So, get body art on your ankle, arm, or back instead.
3. Lubricating it with baby oil: So, you’re ready for sex, and to get things going quick, you rub on some baby oil or another petroleum jelly product. Hmmm! Your v*gina isn’t going to be happy.

Oil-based lubricants are thicker and don’t wash out very easily, so they can get stuck in your v*ginal canal and eventually trap bacteria along with it, resulting in infection, says Minkin. Stick with silicone- or water-based lube instead. Because they wash out easily, they make your vagina smile.

4. Not taking off your gym clothes after a workout: As you lounge around in your sweaty gym pants, bacteria are breeding like crazy, thanks to all that perspiration your below-the-belt region produces (your v*ginal area is packed with sweat glands, you know).

If bacteria get into your vaginal canal, they can upset the balance of the microbes that normally live there and cause a yeast infection, says Minkin.
